McCain Picks Palin
The Insane Liberal Clown Posse is fit to be tied with Senator John McCain's pick of Alaska's Governor Sarah Palin as his VP. The ILCP is foaming at the mouth - they are spitting fire, all you have to do is listen to them - like the rabid Haters that they are! Of course the ILCP is reacting this way. They know no other way to conduct themselves.
Here's what we can expect from The Insane Liberal Clown Posse: they are going to attack Governor Palin in ways that we have never seen in the past. They are going to attack her for being a woman - you watch - the party that claims to be pro-women's rights will viciously go after Palin in ways that will make you blanch.
Palin solidifies the Conservative Base that had many people, including me, not getting excited over McCain.
Heh - the Dems are trying to make hay over what they call Palin's lack of experience. Well, this same allegation is the entire and definitive selling point of Obama! Why do you think Obama picked Biden? Because he desperately needs gravitas! (Howling laughter!)
The Dems are nitpicking on Palin as a "small town mayor." Gee, is there something wrong or bad about having been a small town mayor? The Dems seem to think so, even though The Obamalith is desperately trying to curry favor with voters of small towns and win them over; you know, those folks who cling to their religion and their guns. So picking on Palin's past as a "small town mayor" will backfire on the Dems as a criticism of her. This won't stop the stupid Dems from attacking her on this issue.
Palin has a 2008 80% approval rating. She had a 90% approval rating in 2007.
Obama could have picked Hillary Clinton as his running mate. He could have picked Nanny Pelosi or Barbara Boxer or Dianne Whinestein or Clair McCaskill. It would have been risky, but he could have picked Madeleine Albright, Kathleen Blanco or Cynthia McKinney. All of these women have a solid resume in politics; they would have represented "change". There were plenty of female politicians for Obama to pick as his running mate, but no, he went with a safe bet. An old, 40-year D.C. entrenched Insider with the worst hair plugs in the history of hair transplant technology.
Palin has more experience than the 143-days-actual-in-the-Senate Obama. Palin has more presidential gravitas than does Obama!
Palin has more Executive Branch experience from being a mayor and a governor than does Obama, Biden and even McCain!
This is a good pick. A very intelligent pick. I'm not yet ready to change my mind on sitting this election out...but I'm at least rethinking my decision.
She has minimally twelve times the experience of Obama and has never failed at anything that she did. Obama has never succeeded.
That experience thing is a bad point for the Democrats, only based on facts and math.
I will take your word on the math since I'm not a math guy. ;-)
"Obama has never succeeded." EXCELLENT POINT! Worthy of an entire post itself!
I like Palin. She will make a fine VP!

Oh and I suspect Palin is more than capable in dealing with some limp wristed backward hair wearing leftards.
Netlore Archive: Email rumor claims that Barack Obama is ineligible to become president because according to the laws in effect at the time of his birth he is not a natural-born citizen of the United States.
Description: Email rumor
Circulating since: June 2008
Email example contributed by Carol D., June 8, 2008:
CAN OBAMA BE PRESIDENT?
It seems that Barack Obama is not qualified to be president after all for the following reason:
Barack Obama is not legally a U.S. natural-born citizen according to the law on the books at the time of his birth, which falls between "December 24, 1952 to November 13, 1986?
Presidential office requires a natural-born citizen if the child was not born to two U.S. citizen parents, which of course is what exempts John McCain though he was born in the Panama Canal. US Law very clearly stipulates: ".If only one parent was a U.S. citizen at the time of your birth, that parent must have resided in the United States for at least ten years, at least five of which had to be after the age of 16." Barack Obama's father was not a U.S. citizen and Obama's mother was only 18 when Obama was born, which means though she had been a U.S. citizen for 10 years, (or citizen perhaps because of Hawai'i being a territory) the mother fails the test for being so for at least 5 years **prior to** Barack Obama's birth, but *after* age 16. It doesn't matter *after*.
In essence, she was not old enough to qualify her son for automatic U.S. citizenship. At most, there were only 2 years elapsed since his mother turned 16 at the time of Barack Obama's birth when she was 18 in Hawai'i. His mother would have needed to have been 16+5= 21 years old, at the time of Barack Obama's birth for him to have been a natural-born citizen. As aformentioned, she was a young college student at the time and was not. Barack Obama was already 3 years old at that time his mother would have needed to have waited to have him as the only U.S. Cizen parent. Obama instead should have been naturalized, but even then, that would still disqualify him from holding the office.
*** Naturalized citizens are ineligible to hold the office of President. ***
Though Barack Obama was sent back to Hawaii at age 10, all the other info does not matter because his mother is the one who needed to have been a U.S. citzen for 10 years prior to his birth on August 4, 1961, with 5 of those years being after age 16. Further, Obama may have had to have remained in the country for some time to protect any citizenship he would have had, rather than living in Indonesia.
Now you can see why Obama's aides stopped his speech about how we technically have more than 50 states, because it would have led to this discovery. This is very clear cut and a blaring violation of U.S. election law. I think the Gov. of California would be very insterested in knowing this if Obama were elected President without being a natural-born U.S. citizen, and it would set precedence. Stay tuned to your TV sets because I suspect some of this information will be leaking through over the next several days.
Comments: False. Barack Obama is, in fact, a natural-born citizen of the United States, for the simple reason that he was born on American soil (in Hawaii, two years after it acquired statehood). The age and citizenship status of Obama's parents have no bearing whatsoever on Obama's citizenship.
Any confusion on this point is the result of misunderstanding the legal concepts of jus sanguinis (right of blood) and jus soli (right of birthplace). Here is how the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service explains the difference:
The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees citizenship at birth to almost all individuals born in the United States or in U.S. jurisdictions, according to the principle of jus soli. Certain individuals born in the United States, such as children of foreign heads of state or children of foreign diplomats, do not obtain U.S. citizenship under jus soli.
Certain individuals born outside of the United States are born citizens because of their parents, according to the principle of jus sanguinis (which holds that the country of citizenship of a child is the same as that of his / her parents).
It is a fact that under the provisions of Article Two of the U.S. Constitution naturalized citizens are ineligible to hold the office of president, but this disqualification does not apply to Barack Obama, who has been a citizen since birth.
Update: Is Barack Obama's birth certificate valid?
Self-styled "experts" have questioned the validity of Obama's Hawaii birth certificate as posted online, but after examining the actual document the Annenberg Public Policy Center concluded it is authentic. The state of Hawaii has also affirmed its validity.
;-D... whew!... I think I get it!!!...
ps... I didn't realize that the Lilly Ledbetter post was from June!!... Thanks for putting my comment up anyhoos!... I will pay more attention to the date from now on... And Tammy is a court reporter upon further perusal...
Palin is a great choice, she embodies everything this conservative woman thinks!
It's nice to see people "on my side" when I'm on-line but meeting someone face to face, is just so inspiring. :o)
Oh, a lengthy comment. How I dislike them - no offense intended. Here's why: my experience with lenghty comments is that they usually turn into a lengthy back-and-forth exchange with each side trying to convince the other person to think the way they do. That's not what my blog or comments are about. I always suggest to those who leave a lenghty comment that their time would be better spent by starting their own blog and using that forum to refute not only what I write, but refuting what they believe is incorrect at other blogs and sites.
We really don't know much about Obama. He has not released his original, or a certified copy, of his birth certificate. What he released is a Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) which is a document that merely records a vital statistic. A COLB is not necessarily the equivalent of a Birth Certificate. You can find this out all on your own by researching it.
Many forensic experts have concluded that Obama's COLB is a forgery. Again, you can find this out on your own. Some of the areas of contention that leads to the conclusion that it's a forgery is the font, they typesetting, the borders not matching and that Obama's race is listed on it as "African." The term "African" would never have been used in an era where the societal term for black people was "Negro".
While the State of Hawaii spokesperson may vouch for the authenticity of Obama's COLB, this means nothing. If I were a Liberal, I would jump to the conclusion that there's a cover-up going on over this issue. If I were a Liberal, I would believe that there is a conspiracy to hide the fact that Obama is not a naturally born U.S. citizen and that the Obama campaign "got to" the officials in Hawaii.
Some other items that every Obama supporter should be asking themselves (but they're not) and that the MSM isn't reporting on is: why, as a student in Indonesia, Obama's name is listed as Barry Soetoro; why his religion is listed as Islam when he claims he was never part of the Muslim faith? Why do his relatives in Kenya say that as far as they know, he's always been a Muslim? (Photo's exist of Obama in traditional Muslim clothing.) Why has Obama not released his medical records, what is he hiding? Why does he refuse to release his billing records for the work he did for Tony Rezko? Why has Obama/Soetoro refused to release his application to the Illinois state bar? Why won't he release his legislative records during his time as a Illinois State Senator? Obama has done fundraising for the terrorist group Hamas for crying out loud. His circle of close friends includes terrorists William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn!
I want to be clear on one thing; there's nothing wrong with being a Muslim. There is a problem that Obama is lying about never having been a Muslim when all sorts of evidence are at odds with his claim.
All of the above issues, and more that I haven't mentioned, raise legitimate questions. If these issues and questions were about a Republican candidate instead of a Democrat candidate, The Left would be driving these issue home and the MSM would be reporting on them 24/7.
No Republican candidate would ever escape never-ending criticism from The Left if that candidate had the background of Obama. Some of the worst criticism of Obama has been from other Democrats. Joe Biden and Bill and Hillary saying he's not ready or qualified to be president. Of "change you can Xerox." Jimmy Carter calling Obama "a black boy." Wow, oh wow, if a Republican had used Carter's words in describing Obama The Left would be spitting blood.
Obama and his campaign have not adequately answered any of these questions. They have not provided irrefutable evidence or answers to put these questions to rest. He could release his original birth certificate, but he hasn't. He could release his billing records, but he hasn't. He could release his records from being a state senator, but he claims they are "lost." Hmmmmmm, lost and/or misplaced records...does that sound at all familiar (Hillary Clinton and Whitewater)? He could release his medical records, but hasn't.
I mean, damn, Obama supporter Texas State Sen. Kirk Watson - when asked by Chris Matthews to name one accomplishment achieved by Obama - couldn't list one single thing! The video snippet is easy to find on YouTube.
Finally as far as the "This is who know's what posing as a Real American Family" line, come on, have a sense of humor. Much of what I write is tongue-in-cheek, and includes satire and sarcasm. We know - no matter how much Michelle protests otherwise - that she is on record for twice having said she has never been proud of her country until her husband became a presidential candidate. The U.S. isn't a perfect country, no country is. But to say that one has never been proud of their country until their spouse is a presidential candidate is the height of self-centeredness, arrogance and divisiveness. Had the spouse of a Republican candidate said this, The Left still would be pouncing on these words and defining them as the words from an angry, unAmerican woman. So the line "This is who know's what posing as a Real American Family" is used not only with satire and sarcasm, but elements of truth based on Michelle's own words.
Believe it or not, I hold all politicians to the same standard and apply the same standard to both parties. If you haven't run across this on my blog yet, then you haven't spent enough time here. I have ripped on Republicans no less than I have ripped on Democrats. It just so happens that Democrats - especially the Liberal and Progressive wing - give their own candidate a Free Pass and total immunity from the same criticism that they do Republicans and Conservatives.
For the record, and I've written this several times and you may have not run across it, I consider my political ideology as being an Independent Conservative and a small "L" Libertarian. The Republican Party platform has it's share of faults and weaknesses. I have never said they don't. But the Democrat Party - the party of my mom and late dad - has been hijacked by the Insane Liberal Clown Posse that worships at at the Altar of Abortion (I'm not against all abortions, by the way), that sees a conspriacy in everything when something like 9-11 happens under a Republican Administration and that is always eager to Blame America First. This is the mentality from Liberals that I loathe. They are haters, bigots and racists who are intolerant of any view that differs from theirs. They apply standards and hold others to levels of accountability to which they never hold their own. This is my contention with Liberals and Progressives, NOT necessarily what used to be the Democrat party of my parents.
You don't have to believe me or agree with anything I write. I don't ask that of my readers or those who comment here. It's all out there for you to research on your own, and if you're willing to put in the time and keep an objective mind about it.
I agree with you. Best of all, her choice as VP has totally thrown the Obama campaign off kilter. Two days after announcing Palin by McCain, and Obama and Biden still have no idea how to counter Palin's selection.
And the Dems are scared of her! Go hit some Liberal blogs or sites. They are terrified of the unity she brings to Repubs and Conservatives!
It is nice to hear when people agree on policy and facts instead of conspiracy theories and insanity, isn't it?
This is probably a good weekend for a yard sale. I bet Ellie was busy and loved all the attention!
I am so envious. I just know her from the pics Bug posts of her. She is just adorable.
Whether you agree with her points or not, you'll see more logic and substance in that interview then Gore, Pickens, and all of the other geniuses put together. She expresses her position from the view of the watchdog who truly believes corporate interests, legitimate environmental concerns, and Alaskans, who, in her view, own these resources to begin with, can and will operate in tandem to meet our own national energy needs, as long as everyone plays by the rules and everything's accounted for.
Palin is what the Obots thought they were supporting, someone who's just out of the loop enough to challenge us with a fresh outlook without fashionable outrage or manufactured controversy, with enough native intelligence and down-to-earth common sense to make actually DOING something possible.
I think Americans should give her a chance and hear her out.
I don't get CNBC but will try to find someone who does get it to tape it for me or seek it out on the web.
God knows we need some substance and logic when it comes to our energy issues and it does sound like Palin possesses those qualities.
Thanks for the info on her. I know that coming from you, and what you wrote about her, you are being fair and objective on your take on her.
